So I deserve to be shot?

I really, really wanted to keep to my words. Really wanted to draw a winner for the giveaway on the day I said I would. But I didn't. Life got in the way. I apologize. :)

But here I am, 3 days late. *grins* Here I am :) I decided to ask Neha for a 'lucky number' based on the quantity of comments on the last post. (with a promise that next giveaway, Nidhi will get to choose the lucky number) She said - 36 :) So please wait here patiently while I count my way to comment #36! (might take a while though, since numbers and me, we don't really get along well. heh)

Elaine! You're lucky #36! Congrats!! Email me, okay!

Time to share another layout :)


Why twenteen? Because she is my youngest sister, and she loves the 'teen' behind her age so much, even when she is now twenty :) Then Mr Husband started saying "Happy Twenteen-th Birthday"!! LOL!

Ampersand chipboard - Making Memories. Happy - Chatterbox. Twenteen - Fontwerks stamps on Bo Bunny paper.

Yup, that's about it, scrappy-wise.

School for this year, ends tomorrow. And I plan to just sit there, at the poolside, do nothing but dream for a bit, before the madness of December begins. I need that, really.

And oh, I love you, please don't shoot me? :)

Freestyle Friday and a giveaway

* yes, freestyle again. Because apparently, my brain is fried, overcooked even right this moment, thanks to the humongous headache that has taken residence for the past two days. (I love using the word humongous! It may be my 'word of the month'!)

* I turned 31 last week. Loads of well wishes on FB, text messages and emails. Thank you guys! I spent the day with good girlfriends and my family. Happiness.


* Butterfly cheesecake, specially made by Audrey for me. Thank you Audrey! *hugs*


* Assam Laksa - a spicy, sour-ish noodle with fish gravy - dish. I promise you it's yummy. Had that for birthday breakfast.

* I have stopped counting the days until my sister gets married. I figured there is no use of me getting all nervous and fidgety. LOL.

* The time is now 9.32pm. I have been thinking about going to bed since 3.30pm. Yet, here I am.

* Mr Husband bought me a running tights. I wore that to gym one day and someone there complimented that I lost weight. I smiled. Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it isn't there. I am talking about my soft midsection being held inside by the wonderful tights. LOL.

* I *heart* you, so I'll stop rambling and get on with the giveaway, okay? Okay.

I'm sure you have heard about Pixie Petals before, right? Hop on over if you haven't! She has an awesome mix of bellies and tags and most adorable crocheted flowers! The sweet girl sent me some mix of her stuff and guess what? You'll have a chance to get some too. Read on, I'll tell you how. . . :)


Something familiar? I used the lace cardstock as a mask for a layout before.

Love love love love love those gorgeousness. Makes me wanna learn to crochet too, but why bother when I can have them made for me? Right?!!

So do you wanna get your hot little hands on more than the flowers and tag I used on my layout? Yes? :) Just tell me you love me leave me a comment on this post and I'll draw the names next Tuesday. That should give you plenty of time, eh? :)

* If you can read the journaling on the layout, they're not the only ones who does the shrieking. I shriek my fair share too. I hope they still love me :)

* I took 1 hour and 7 minutes to complete this post. Not bad considering I usually take 5 days and then some. *grins*

xoxo :)

Lesson for today. . .

well, for me at least. Do not ever bother with make-up when you're going to the gym, because at the end of it, you're a freakin' meltin' hot mess anyway.

Just so you know, I am not a gym person, I do my thing outdoor, at the park, by the beach. But today, I actually gave in and stepped into the gym. Was pretty intimidated at first, but after a while.. oh well, I don't really care about other people anyway. I must say it's pretty nice working out with the view of the swimming pool and planes taking off and landing in front of you. Even though I really can only see the planes due to my shortage of tallness. Ha-Ha. I was pretty much the same height as the treadmill control buttons! Talk about intimidating!

I am still not a gym person as of now, but I think I can learn to love it. Let's move on to prettier topic, shall we?

A little while ago, the gorgeous Jeni Boisvert sent me some Shimmerz to play with! How sweet is that? Thank you Jeni.


I am not good with whites, I noticed. But I love that look, so Hambly to the rescue :) Orange overlay + white cardstock = pure deliciousness. Then, because the base is white, I went to town and added about a trillion other colors. Yes, I am an exaggerator :)

DYMO goodness + crackle paint + embroidery thread.

Close up of the gorgeous butterflies, I used Heidi Swapp mask and Shimmerz in Mango Madness! How cute is that name??!! Then outlined with Stickles in Star Dust. I really wish you can see this in real life because those Shimmerz, the end product is really this awesome, glossy perfection!

Making Memories brads + more embroidery thread + green felt ric-rac + Jenni Bowlin sticker. and Oh! Hambly Rub ons! Love that pop of hot pink, matches my DYMO refill :D

I don't know about you, but all the colors here. . . is making me giddy with excitement! LOL. And I really, really hope our LSS will bring Shimmerz into Singapore really, really soon. Boy, I need a COMPLETE collection and then some if you ask me! (just don't let Mr Husband know about this, okay? Okay.)
